MSNBC Fires Employee Responsible for Cheerios Tweet

January 30, 2014

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, MSNBC president Phil Griffin called the Tweet “outrageous and unacceptable.”

“We immediately acknowledged that it was offensive and wrong, apologized, and deleted it,” the statement continued. “We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet.

I personally apologize to Mr. Priebus and to everyone offended. At MSNBC we believe in passionate, strong debate about the issues and we invite voices from all sides to participate. That will never change.”
